I just finished watching the PBS documentary 'In the Footsteps of Alexander' and I had an idea of a good Indy adventure. I wonder why no thought to the tomb of Alexander was given. According to the ancient chronicler Diodorus Siculus, Alexander was put in the temple of Ammon at Memphis, Egypt. Later his glass sarcophogus was moved to Alexandria. I know the t.v. show Macgyver did a bit on this years ago but, it fell far short of historical accuracy and reality.
Diodorus also goes on to describe the funeral portments of Alexander in considerable detail. I think an Indy adventure based off of this information could make a good story. There is so much more to Alexander's legend, however, it would be a good place to start. Maybe an interesting forum novel???
